Noise-induced hearing loss happens when tiny hair-like structures (stereocilia) that sit on top of hair cells in the inner ear are damaged by noises that are too loud and/or last for too long. When stereocilia are damaged, the hair cells can’t send information about the sound to the brain. This leads to noise-induced hearing loss. This type of hearing loss is permanent. 

Hearing loss can be prevented. Be aware of your exposure to noise and wear custom ear plugs to ensure you are doing everything you can to protect your precious hearing.
